If you can't get a wiring diagram... locate the wiring harness for the lights.... use a multimeter to test the wires....even one of those ice pick type of testers with the light on it will do
have someone step on the brake.... whichever wire has voltage is the brakes. next have them turn on the right turn signal... check for voltage on the other wires... it will of course be off on . do the other side the same way. all you have left is the wire for your running lights.... turn on the parking lights for that. also if i remember right there is a connector already there for the towing package. even if you didn't order that with the vehicle it's likely there. check in the side panel where you store the jack.

Best to pop in to your local Subaru dealer and ask them what is required for wiring in a trailer plug, a lot of new vehicle require special equipment to prevent damage to the electronics that control the lighting on the vehicles, especially those that have LED style lights on them. Get a quote from them on cost of them doing the job, and for the parts only if you want to get someone else with a cheaper labour rate to do it.

Hope this helps,
Mark.

If you adding a trailer light harness, you can buy a seperate harness from most auto parts stores that will plug right in. There should be a connector near the rear of the truck that you can unplug, and add the trailer harness. It's simple and fast and you don't end up making a mess of your wiring. I suggest puting some "dielectric grease" on the connections to prevent corrosion.
Flat 4 connector.
Brown is tail lights and marker lights.
Yellow and Green are turn and stop. I think yellow is left.
White is ground.

Relay and module


I think you might be talking about the "Trailer Lighting Converter" or the "Tow Ready" Tail Light Converter, or they may call it a trailer light module. This module plugs into the vehicles OEM harness. If this failed then you could have such symptoms. But they could also be talking about the "Trailer Light Socket" (your trailer electrical plug plugs into this socket). I hope this helps. If not try to give more details. Good luck.

How to wire a 4 pin connector for a LED Tailgate bar into the brake lines on a 2000 dodge dakota without trailor plug


With both tail light lenses removed locate the black with yellow wires and the dark green with brown wires coming out of the brake/tail/turn signal sockets.

The black with yellow wire will be the running lights or tail lights and the brown wire from the trailer harness will attach to it.

The green wire on the trailer harness will be the right turn signal and will be attached to the passenger side tail light harness dark green with brown wire.

The yellow wire on the trailer harness will be the left turn signal and will be attached to the dark green with brown wire on the drivers side tail light harness.

The white wire on the trailer harness is the ground wire and will need to be attached to a good ground. Is it pretty easy to crimp an eyelet onto the end of the wire and use a self tapping screw to attach it to the body behind one of the tail light lenses.

Here is a trailer light/wiring article I have done in the past. It has a couple of good tips you may find useful.

Both back brake lights burned out at the same time


if have trailer hitch - check for bare wires shorted together, if no trailer hitch look inside left frame rail at tail end- harness should come from front of truck to this point then cross over to right side- look for a cut or bare wiring again

I am connecting a trailer towing harness to my Nissan 2004 Titan (2wd), to tow my boat and need to know what the color codes to the parking, stop, and reverse wires are.


if you go to the parts store they make them ready to plug in you will have to just unplug the tail lights and plug the wire harness inplace of it then itll plug back into the original spot.

I brought a dodge Dakota that came with a hitch and electrical hook up, but when i try to use it, it wont light up. so i asked the Mechanic at the dealer and he wants to charge 140.00 to fix


Goto autozone and get a trailer hitch hookup and it just clips in on your tail lights for about 20 buck you can do your self!! I did this cause my dodge truck did not have one at all so i did that and my boat trailers lights worked!!

There should be a tail light connection behind the left light assembly, where the harness adapter plugs in.
